Thai Village (CLOSED)
592 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02118
The South End of Boston, while no longer completely undiscovered, remains a mostly little-known neighborhood to many people, including tourists, businesspeople, and even some Boston-area locals. This lovely neighborhood, which is located just south of the Back Bay section of the city, has a real New York City feel to it in places; the quiet tree-lined streets, elegant stoops with iron rails, and tidy brick row houses would indeed not be all that much out of place in the West Village or Chelsea neighborhoods of Manhattan.
Intermingled with the row houses of the South End are many fine restaurants, some of which are virtually unknown. Thai Village is one of these restaurants. This cozy little hole in the wall just a mile away from downtown Boston has lots to offer--fresh food, friendly service, and a very low-key atmosphere. All the Thai standards are here, from tasty pad thai to red-hot curry dishes.
There are many great Thai restaurants in Boston and the surrounding area. Boston's Brown Sugar Cafe, House of Siam, and Montien, and Arlington's Thai Moon are just a few competing restaurants that rise above the pack. But if you want to go somewhere that is a bit out of the way and a real sleeper, you can't go wrong with the South End's fabulous Thai Village.
